A Prayer for the World Day of Prayer for Vocations

April 24, 2012

By Sister Cynthia S.

Gracious and Merciful God,

In your great wisdom you have called each human person to accept your call to fullness of life in Jesus Christ our Good Shepherd. Within that call, each of us finds our special path to you as we listen for your voice in our hearts and in the many blessed experiences of our lives.

Today we pray that those you are calling to a religious vocation may respond with eager spirits and willing hands. May our families nurture the call of God in our children.

May our parishes support the call through vibrant celebrations of our faith. May our Church leadership recognize that it is your Holy Spirit who calls and shapes each vocation. Rejoicing in the new life of this Paschal season, let us be grateful for the opportunities we have to serve you and your people.

May our Church and world be blessed with an abundance of women and men who consecrate their lives to that service, so that all people may come to know the deep joy of your abundant love.

We pray through Jesus Christ, risen from the dead and always shepherding your Church, and in your Holy Spirit, who blesses us with courage, now and forever.

Amen.
